We have several varieties of Willows that we sell. From the early spring favorites, pussy willows, to the highly decorative Dappled Willow. Not all of them are the wild, water hunting terrors that some people think they are. They do prefer wetter areas than most plants. We do carry a few Weeping Willow trees that are right at home near a pond or wet area. They are not for planting near water or sewer lines. Willows are all fast growers and the branches are often used for decorative projects and even basketry.

Golden Curls Willow grows fast and curly. Straight branches are not found on these trees. We sell some with specially braided trunks for use as small patio or novelty trees. We carry them as multi-branched shrubs that are grown as pruned shrubs. They can also be grown as full sized willows with the weeping wavy branches of golden yellow.



Quantities on some of these Willows are very limited.
If you are looking for a particular variety,
ask us, because we may have it even if it is not in the sale.
